Does anyone have any idea what this is?

So, my Ranger was broken into a few weeks ago, and a found this piece on the passenger seat. It is a white plug, about 1/4 inch square and about an inch long. It has a slot in one end like it would plug into something and the other end has a blue wire coming out.
I have three possible places it came from.
1. Somewhere behind the radio- Had an aftermarket pioneer, was stolen.(Dealer thinks it might be this, but don't know what it is.
2. The domelight frame was broken.
3. Something inside the passenger door???- They pryed the lock cylinder out of the door with a screwdriver and unlocked it.

The repair shop had no idea.

The catch is that I put the stock radio back in and it is fine, as well as the light and the power door locks and windows.
Obviously it doens't seem very important, but I am really curious- maybe it didn't even come from my truck?





The smaller pics in the album are a little clearer.

leftover parts means you built it better than they could.

Off the cigarette lighter plug maybe? I thought they're usually black though...

I don't think it's the cig lighter since the live center wire is a stud connector and the ground is a black wire and has a bare female spade connector. What color stripe is on the wire?

I dont think its the cig plug. Both power plugs have power, 4x4 switch is fine, fog light button works. There a small silver stripe around the wire near the plastic, but other than that its just a solid blue wire.
Thanks for the input though.
